city and long island that anybody has ever experienced, to put that into perspective for you. a very strong, incred iible, daicialtion, potentially deadly storm we are watching. a very interesting or annoying technicality is coming out of the national weather service, and the national hurricane center. tell not be a hurricane. and so when it makes landfall -- meaning meteorologically, it will be a nor'easter, so while it is now hurricane sandy, it won't be a hurricane when it comes ashore. the national hurricane center is -- will not be issuing advisories for it, therefore, no hurricane warnings have been posted. but the impacts and the effects across the northeast will be every bit as bad as a significant hurricane here. so because you are want hearing hurricane warning, tell happen. what is happening, local weather service offices are issuing local wind advisories, to central appalachians to the northeast, high wind warnings, a big inland event. i want to show you the wind field. those are winds, 30 miles per hour. darker blue is 50-mile-per-hour storms. right now, we have the 30-m
city they will be on the northern end of the storm system and we will see the rise in water out here. we could be looking at a storm surge as high as eight feet. as we coincide that, we are talking about a lot of coastal flooding for many of these people. a lot of flood watches from north carolina and as far inland as cleavland, ohio. this is not just a coast ali vent, but well -- coastal event. >> that does not look good. we will talk about how to prepare for the storm. he will add getting your meds in place for this hurricane. >>> the eastern u.s. faces a threat from hurricane sandy and taking it seriously. that's a good thing. parts of the of the northeast with mandatory evacuations. sandy is whipping the carolinas right now is making her way up the coast. we go live to north carolina where a tropical storm warning and a flood watch are now in affect. elizabeth, what is going on there? we seem to be not getting any reprieve. the wind and rain is relentless, and we are getting pelted by very, very cold rain. the wind is 25 to 30 miles per hour, but we anticipate through the night u
into the new york city metropolitan area, and when we talk about significant winds, we're talking about winds that have a good chance of causing power outages and a lot of do you understand trees glerg david, how much flooding should we expect? >> coastal flooding could be a huge problem. there are evacuations being ordered along the coast because of that, and we have two things going on. we have the angle of approach. the storm is going to make that turn and move directly west or west-northwest into the coastline, and that causes the highest storm surge in some of these locations. and also we have the full moon in effect with multiple tide cycles. we'll have to go through more than one high tide during this event and that will only pile up the water that much higher. you really need to listen to what your local emergency management officials are saying if they tell to you evacuate. >> brennan: millions of people are bracing for the storm. chip reid is standing by in ocean city, maryland. elaine quijano is in point pleasant beach, new jersey. we begin with chip reid. chip, good evening. >> re

towns to get slammed and that is ocean city maryland, steve harrigan streaming live to us from there. steve. >> reporter: we are in chrisfield maryland one of the hardest hit towns, it's right on the bay. we have been watching rescue operations throughout the day. the rain is coming down. floodwater tph-s three to four he town and many people trying to get out. yesterday the first responders were working by boat, today they are working by vehicle. we've seen a lot of national guard, sheriff's and fire departments out in humvees. people have been calling them to get them out of their houses. we've seen a number of elderly couples, as well as mothers with young children. they are scared, they are cold, they don't have electricity, and they are asking for help. we've seen them carried out really by hand, by these firefighters, many of whom have been working the past 24 hours. one fire tkhaoef told me we ar chief told me we are not getting paid for this but it's a privilege to serve. we have seen them break up the towns in grids going door to door banging on doors and pulling out people
here, new jersey can speak for the region and there's no need for you to come to new york city. what do you think that's about? >> well, i think that's about recovering from the storm. it is real difficult for any white house -- or any city that's been hit boy a storm to deal with a motorcade and a presidential -- a bunch of secret service vans all over the place. that gets in the way of recovery efforts. if there's a place he can go in new jersey to see the damage without getting in the way of the recovery, that's where president obama needs to go right now. it reminds me of the stated reason that george w. bush didn't land in new orleans right after hurricane katrina. he didn't want to get in the way of some of the cleanup. of course that disaster response didn't go as well as it looks like president obama is handling the response happening this time. but there is the danger dealing with secret service logistics at a time when regular logistics, just living every day life, becomes incredibly hard. >> i think it's worth pointing out certainly the obama campaign probably didn't imagine
with the storm's center currently about 730 mimes to the south of new york city. here's the track. this wild s-shape that has all of us as meteorologists shaking our heads. because never really seen this left hook. it will bring it 150 miles to the south of new york city early tuesday morning. then there is the impact. let's lay them out. we start with the storm surge. in irene at battery park which is where i am tonight, we had three to six feet. we're expecting four to eight feet with this storm here and down the jersey shore as well. that will be higher than what they dealt with during irene. so plan on similar scenarios there. then look at the rainfall. huge areas of two inches plus, four inches plus. locally ten inches in spots in parts of new jersey and the chesapeake bay. if you remember the state of new jersey was one of those heavily fladed flooded back here with irene. then snowfall. to add insult to injury, west virginia, ohio, maryland, pennsylvania and parts of virginia could get 50 inches of snow with this. add all these ingredients together, that means power outages, some which
. passengers can not get in or out of new york city, boston washington dc or philadelphia. airlines are waiving fees for passengers in some areas and in some cases offering refunds. >> even when we were on the scene we could see the storm developing. it made everyone kind of on averageedge. were anxious to get home. >> amtrak stop service between washington d.c. and chicago. >> people i've been warned to take caution on chicago's lakefront because of hurricane sandy. it could with up waves higher than double decker buses. 20 ft. waves are expected this evening and 33 ft. waves are expected tomorrow. >> president obama is canceling his appearance at a campaign event in ohio with former president bill clinton. he also canceled an event in virginia. >> michelle obama got out of washington a day early and spent the night here in chicago. she will fly to iowa for a couple campaign appearances and then get back to chicago where she will wait out the storm. she has canceled an appearance tomorrow in new hampshire. >> mitt romney cancelled events in virginia and new hampshire and is moving his ca

is located about 310 miles south-southeast of new york city at the moment. emergency officials in new york city and washington, d.c. have taken unprecedented action to deal with the storm shutting down the mass transit systems and cancelling schools. >> stock markets here in new york have been closed for today, possibly they will be closed tomorrow as well. and here's why. look at the size of this storm. this is a nasa image from space captured over the weekend. the hurricane is about 800 miles wide. that means it's going to impact a huge region and since it's moving so slowly only 15 or 10 miles an hour it will impact that region for a very long time. >> obviously a huge weather story. there's a political story here too. the presidential election just eight days away, president obama began his day in florida but with the weather deteriorating in washington, d.c., he rushed back to the white house. he cancelled his appearance in orlando and has just now cancelled an event for tomorrow scheduled for green bay, wisconsin and governor romney has also cancelled some of his events. we'll have m
